One collection we have discovered in recent years is written by Jamie Lee Curtis, and illustrated by Laura Cornell. I love her quirky stories which illustrate fundamental life lessons, all brought down to the entertainment level of a child. Regarding the artwork, I cannot give enough praise to how creative and charming the illustrations by Laura Cornell are throughout these books.
Some of my favorites are listed below...
|Cute story about the trials and tribulations of a 5-yr old and "learning how to work my control panel" Any mother of a five-year old (or toddler for that matter) will enjoy!|
|This story is a parody about our over-zealous achievement culture, and it emphasizes old fashioned values such as good sportsmanship, citizenship, friendship, and encourages the reader to "make the world better for the whole human race"|
|Such a charming story that illustrates the enormous strides our children make from infancy to toddlerhood...the narrator reminisces about all of the things she can do now that she could not before...."A four-year-old's memoir of her youth"|
